It’s my niece’s 2nd birthday today, if you would like to see more of her check out her mum’s blog (she is also a very talented one of a kind doll maker!)

Here she is, saying hello through her little house window, a few seconds after we put it together (a present from her grandparents!)

Isn’t she just the most adorable thing ever.  Her dad, and myself were putting the house together and Charlotte was already climbing through the windows, this present, as well as the Little People Farmhouse from Mummy were big hits!

So how about your stitching Q? Well…

I finished and posted my June (yeah June!) Block Swap Adventure Block ( it’s flying to Maryland, to it’s new owner Sunny!)

Here is a sneak peek!

It was so exciting to get going again, that I sped ahead (of course, Mini Me had to check my progressing after some piecing)

Usually around this time I would be regaling you with some totally moronic thing I did, whilst piecing, but this stitching episode was reasonably pain free!  So probably less amusing than the usual blog post hey?  I did work with my trademark light box (my bedside lamp between my legs and the top of a clear plastic storage container over it… extremely un-glamorous, but it gets the job done? See?!

I’ve mentioned before how much I love this fabric range, so I will try not to sound like a broken record, but these fabrics are so delicious, you may have to check your blood sugar levels after playing with them.  For those who don’t know it is Sweet Broderie for Lecien Fabrics designed by Rosalie Quinlan.

So I spent all day Sunday watching my psycho serial killer and real crime stories (I figure the more I watch the less I kill right?!)  And this is the result.  One birdhouse completed.
